Good for you Congressman!
My question as someone who is unemployed is why do Republicans suddenly worry about “off-setting” when they never did under Bush?
They passed TARP with no demand for off-setting.
Aid to Haiti earlier this year with no demand for off-setting.
And on and on.......
It simply looks bad, and I say this as a Republican.
The democrats want high unemployment because it leads to dependency on government which in turn leads to control.
It was a sad day when the people of California by-passed Tom Mclintock for governor in favor of Hollywood muscleman Arnold “The Terminator” Schwarzennager.
Where was all the fuss about the internationalista banksters who stole all the bread from the truck?
And why all the energy now to bicker over crumbs?
I liken it taking water out of one end of a swimming pool then dumping it in the other end and expecting the water level to rise.
A lone voice in Washington who “gets it.”
Here's the video of the same speech.
Thank you, Congressman
Time to dust off the Tom McClintock ping
It’s a good thing Republicans were standing up to Bush in 2003 for extensions. Oh wait, they passed them fine post 9/11.
And it’s a good thing they were such spending averse the whole time they were in total control. Oh....
Please direct your press releases to a wire service, drop the title, join us as Tom and contribute to advancing conservatism at the grass roots.
This hysteria over $34b is the stupidest thing Ive seen politicians do for awhile. The GOP needs to get OFF this bandwagon quick becaus look like, and are, such hypocrites on this subject at this point.
I agree. This whole communist takeover was made possible by anti-American RINO policies. My comments below from April are pretty much the same as they have been for the past decade. RINOs have been Stuck-on-Stupid for much longer than that.
Economic Collapse is a Direct Result of the Quest for Free and Cheap Labor
Thursday, April 29, 2010 at 12:24am
The collapse of our economy is a direct result of the quest for free and cheap labor at every level of the payscales. The various bubbles (tech, real estate, interest, and derivitaves bubbles) were attempts to avoid the collapse, and to continue to suck the residual wealth from citizens.
The anti-American Open Borders movement and the massive work visa frauds were intended to prop up the various bubbles long enough for the elitist quislings to maximize their theft of residual wealth from American citizens.
You cannot maintain an economy that is 70% driven by consumer spending, while simultaneously waging economic warfare against those consumers, as the Democrats and RINOs have done for the past two decades or more.
The USA is still importing 140,000 visa workers per month to displace American citizens from their jobs. 5,000 illegal invaders per day (200,000 per month) are still crossing our southern border to displace American citizens from their jobs.
More than 20 million American citizens are currently unemployed and underemployed. New college and high school graduates are unable to get jobs, primarily because more than 40 million foreign workers and illegal invaders are in the USA working under either fraudulent work visas or as illegal employees.
We can put these American citizens back to work by securing the borders against illegal invasion, suspending work visa programs, cutting taxes, cutting our bloated governments at every level, reviving American manufacturing and other production, and drilling and mining for our own energy resources.
To accomplish the above, we all need to recognize and repudiate anti-American politicians, whether from the communist Democrat side or from the gutless, nutless RINO camp. This 2010 primary season, it is imperative to replace RINOs with solid pro-American constitutional conservatives.
This November, it is imperative to vote against the communist Democrats and send them into retirement in record numbers. We must have the numbers in the House and Senate to defund and stop this communist destruction of the USA.
It's not rocket science: Close the damn border, and suspend ALL visa work programs immediately.
I just compiles a chronicle of 20 years of new environmental regulations applicable to the businesses and people of my county. I put it next to a 20 year trend analysis I did of the economy of the county. (It was for a commulative effects analysis on removal of the four Klamath River Dams.) There is a direct correlation between the effects of environmental regulations on natural resource use and availability and the economy. (It is intuitive, but they needed facts and proof.)
If they want to make jobs, beck off the damn regulations! At the very least, it would be a partial offset to the loss of capital for business. Unfortuantely, the Administration is insanely adding significant regulation (Health Care, 1099s, climate change) at the same time they are reducing capital. This will affect small businesses the hardest http://www.sba.gov/advo/research/rs264tot.pdf The big business backers of Obama love this because it kills their competition. However, small business is the engine of the American economy.
